Star Gazing Apps Tue, 27 Jun 2017 15:14:23 +0000 Star Gazing Apps Star Gazing Apps KTVX ABC 4 Salt Lake City >> well, it was tech time tuesday, i'm here with christopher, and we are, i'm excited about today's topic because this is actually something really fun. we're talking about apps nor star gazing, i live near a park where on saturday morning or on saturdays i'll drive by and there is a whole bunch of guys with their telescope looking up at the sky. sometimes my daughter and i have been walking by and they will have us stop and take a look. this is just kind of a different way to do that, right? >> well, yeah, next time you get stopped to take a look you can be the smart one and tell them the constellations. >> i already know. >> you have to use these apps first so you know where they are at if are you going to go camping, even in the city you have the problem of too many lights, these apps can help you see through that and point out where the stars should be. there are several of them, skyview, star walk two and then night sky. those are the ones i want to highlight ant it sad there are so many lights i love driving up immigration canyon, once you get to the top of there it is compleatly pitch black. these turn your phone into-- i will hold the phone up so you can get it on the camera. >> hopefully we can see that. >> as you move it answer you will start to see the stars. there is no con tellation back here. >> there is one. that one is actually aquarius you will see it draws out the con tellation. as you move it you will be able to connect it to the dog and draw the aquarius, actually the con tellation itself. >> it is a real good way to learnnd notice how we are inside but it still works because it's going off your gps and where it is pointed to. >> see that was my first question when i saw him start doing that. >> right. >> yeah. >> it goes off your gps and that brings up an important point. we talk about this often when we are talking about apps. turn on your location services because if you don't then it can't tell where you are. >> also with your location services it allows you to use these apps anywhere in the world. >> if you are traveling, one of my favorite things when i go down in the southern hemisphere, the south pacific, the con tellations are completely different. here we are used to the north star and that being our guide. down there it's completely different. these apps help you get through that and help you navigate through that. >> another one that is really fun is star walk two, i won't show that because it is a little more in depth. but this one actually t will actually teach you the constellations and teach you more about astronomy. >> okay. >> so it's kind of fun that way. >> is it a good app for kids. >> any of these are good for young and old. it's fun to look at your phone and try and find out where the constellations are. it doesn't matter what age you are. >> okay. good learning actual. >> absolutely. and like you said when are you camping looking for something it do, even fourth of jawl when you are out at the park looking for fireworks or waiting for the fireworks you can pull out one of these apps, look up at the sky and have fun with that. >> will it show you what the sky would look like in the future or maybe in the past. >> as a photographer one of the things i'm looking for is what is the night sky is going to look like if i'm doing night photography. some of these apps will give you the ability to actually look forward and look behind. so you can actually see what it is going to be like in three weeks or two weeks when you are on that vacation. >> interesting. >> you can actually die it in and see what constellations you are going to see. >> interesting. >> kind of fun. always so much fun to have you here and we always learn something new so thank you, chris. >> absolutely. >> all right, brian, let's see, before we go to brian we want to at least get your website up here. so tech life where you can be found. and yeah, so much fun to have
